What is most valuable?

The web application firewall which protects our services on the internet, and then of course services like our ability to provide high availability for the services we are… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The services are almost 100% available to everybody. The solution is invisible for our clients, so by using it, nobody knows that anything is broken because we're hiding… more»

What needs improvement?

The user interface could be more friendly. Some wizards and other documentation for administrators, as well as some use cases, helps us to understand the solution.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There are some add ons to the standard licensing that you can buy for the basic version. You can extend with some add ons, or you can buy the premium version, so it… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

No, we haven't been using any other solution.

What other advice do I have?

It's always a really good idea to do a POC. There are companies that are not convinced as to why should they should use something, but a POC is a good way to show why. The… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We were looking at different options according to price. We looked at the F5. The Citrix pricing was good for what it offers.

What is most valuable?

I think that the work balancing applications are the most valuable feature. The licensing model that Citrix has implemented is very good. It's a pay-by-use system.

What needs improvement?

The product could be improved by making it easier to use and easier to implement. We've had some difficult problems with that. An additional feature they could include more of a firewall, as you would find with Checkpoint, Fortinet or Palo Alto firewalls, which all have specific features for security. It would be good if they could include some kind of technical analysis in the next version but I… more»

What other advice do I have?

The deployment model depends on the customer and normally it's carried out by the customer, because NetScaler in Portugal, where I am, isn't well known so we do a proof of concept first for a couple of months and then after the installation, configuration and the customer approves the product, then the department delivers it. There are some security problems, there's are DOS problems, different… more»

What is most valuable?

We incorporated all three because of the fact that we have one central proxy server and everything's on an SDN, so we can get any device anywhere anytime.

How has it helped my organization?

In South Africa, we're going through load-shedding. When our primary link goes down I can still get to my Cisco devices and the NetScaler devices on-prem because of the SDN solution. If the internet… more»

What needs improvement?

Security could be improved because then I can get rid of my Cisco firewalls. If they improve the security then I could run my security, my proxy, my firewalling and my SDN solution on one device… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The standard licensing fees work in the way that you get one license with it for whatever you're going to be utilizing it for. We integrated the firewall, the proxy services, and the SDN.

What other advice do I have?

The advice I would give somebody researching this solution is to do your research properly and see what's the best solution for the company and the company's needs before you make a decision. You… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at FortiGate and Palo Alto.
